"You have started on a journey and now need to scout and plan the route forward. It's time to step outside of your comfort zone and begin to find your way in new and uncharted territory. Keep your thoughts on your goal and keep moving towards it."
the bad film Ready Player One
I don't know why I just remembered Ready Player One but its such a soul-crushing movie, the thing it imagines is so small
there's a Smart Guy and he builds a Fancy Thing and then he just gets to decide all culture for an entire generation of people
none of this is fixed. the goal in the film is not to overthrow this hell but to keep it out of the hands of people who don't value Nerd Shit. The main character perpetuates this state of affairs
mh(-), art hiatus
I think I've finally accepted the idea that I just need to not force myself to draw for a while. I can't seem to avoid tossing a sketchbook in my backpack, but I've packed up the cintiq and most of my supplies for the time being. I've been stuck in this slump for a long time, and I don't know that it's going away anytime soon. I've just got to ride it out and hope for the best.
upcycling, tech, shopping
I popped by the local University surplus shop last night; just about drove past it entirely, as it was the first time I've ever been and no one thought to warn me that it was in the basement of a nondescript brick building in a virtual sea of the bastards. Still entirely worth the trip - managed to find a five year old quad core i5 desktop for around $50. This could be a dangerously addictive new habit - it's cheaper to scavenge older hardware this way than buying it online.
